Internet Smarts: Surfing and Shopping Safely Online

From Dorothy Mayer, an educator, “I think it’s important to stay connected and share information with others.

I received an email from one of the parents of the students in my workshop, Chelsea. In the email, she included a reference that she discovered with links to more info on how to stay safe and responsible online – “Internet Smarts: Surfing and Shopping Safely Online” She’s attended many of my other workshops, and always going that extra mile!

As the blog writer, this is an awesome resource Chelsea, – I wanted to turn something like this into an ebook and you still can. I was going to call mine
“Walk Away from the Cart!” Feel free to use.”
